Gr 7 Up--A high-quality, comprehensive overview of the Aleut, Yupik, and Inuit cultures that's filled with luminous full-color photographs, reproductions, and maps. The text is divided into three long chapters: ``The Hunting Way of Life''; "`Never Weary of Laughter,'" which speaks of family and community life; and ``A Struggle to Preserve Tradition.'' Extensive information in each category provides even those new to the subject with solid, even-handed material delivered in a respectful tone. Six photo essays and many shorter photo-and-text treatments are interspersed throughout. Two teach about contemporary hunting experiences, and several illustrate modern adaptations in 20th-century Inuit culture. ``Contests of Strength and Dexterity'' highlights the annual World Eskimo-Indian Olympics held in Fairbanks each July. ``The Messenger Feast'' examines Kivgiq, a celebration being revived on Alaska's North Slope during the darkest, coldest months. In comparison, E.S. Burch's The Eskimos (Univ. of Oklahoma, 1988) offers a similarly well-illustrated overview for high school and adult readers. People of the Ice and Snow is an excellent source for YAs.
